If you are planning to arrive on a Sunday, don't even bother. I found the place closed, and after calling the owner, received nothing but rudeness from her. She was was reluctant to let me in, first telling me about how hard she has to work, and how being closed when guests are scheduled to arrive was "normal". Also, she... More

My sister and I stayed here during our trip to Lubeck. This Hostel offers a welcoming atmosphere with nice people. The kitchen area can be used for cooking and meeting the other visitors and of course Piia, the head of the hostel. She is a wonderful person who played an important part in making this trip what it was. If... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this beatiful little independant run hostel. The owner is very warm and friendly and the atmosphere is homely and relaxed. A real breath of fresh air compared to the franchise run places you seem to find everywhere else. I would recommend this place to anyone thinking of visiting the little town of Lubeck.

We were very happy to accidentally stumble upon the Rucksack Hotel. The owner Piia is friendly and welcoming, and has made a lovely space for relaxing. She has a fantastic humour and is very accomodating. We felt like we were at home as we fell asleep. The street it is on has an interesting mix of arty shops, and the... More

This hostel is just off the old town so within very easy reach of everything. Our family room was very spacious with loads of hot water for the showers and we had french windows that went straight into the garden. Everyone was very helpful and English is spoken by the owner who was exceptionally helpful when my husband had a... More

It is located in east part of the old town overlooking the canal. It is next to a pleasant eco restaurant and also very near to not so eco Aldi. It is 30 minutes walk from the train station, maybe best to get bus if you have big rucksack, get off in the main shopping street and walk 10 minutes... More

I had a simply great time there but I was already aware that, as the "RUCKSACK Hotel", it is more of a hostel than a conventional hotel: the well appointed kitchen being ideal for self service (which is why I feel I could not give more than three stars for "Restaurant"). I found Piia, the propietor, was very warm and... More

Having previously emailed the owner and arranged what dates I wanted to stay, I arrived on my own in Lubeck to find a closed hostel. The opening hours said opened at 5pm, so I waited around, but no-one ever turned up! Tried calling the telephone numbers listed but numbers weren't in use - there was absolutely no life in the...
